to be fiscally responsible and reduce the deficit. to make velft to grow our economy and to meet our obligation to our seniors, to our families and to our future and the republican budget fails all three. republican budget threatens our nation by undermining our economic growth and by shifting the financial burden for the deficit, and the deficit reduction, to our seniors and the middle class. republicans have made their choices clear, end medicare as we know it, adding costs to seniors today and ending the medicare guarantee tomorrow, slashing investments necessary for economic competitiveness and giving millionaires an average of $400,000 in tax breaks. republican budget eliminates protection for millions of our sickest seniors who depend on nursing home and home health services and republican budget will increase taxes for average middle-class families by $3,000. their choices will cost two million jobs next year alone and decrease economic growth by 1.7%. in contrast, the democratic alternative present serves -- preserves the medicare guarantee and makes investments in education, innovation

our ailing economy and certainly not the answer for the hardworking folks back home in wyoming. when you start with one party doing the drafting and those who wrote the budget hold the majority on the budget committee, you can expect the bill to be one-sided. if you keep on doing whatever you a been doing, you can expect to get the same results. unfortunately, i believe that's what we'll see this week as we debate the budget here on the senate floor. the majority kept us in the dark on the budget until the last -- until last wednesday evening. we had to present our opening statements in the budget committee before we even sue the budget the majority -- even saw the majority the budget would offer. i do have to say in the defense of the majority that that's the way it's been for several years, both when the republicans were in charge and when the democrats are in charge. thea's thacharge that doesn't mean it is right. you have to share it. so then we had to turn around and start voting on the amendments the next morning in the budget committee and we weren't part of that process, beca

the scientists and many other things. sanctions are hammering the iranian economy. to focus on iran, for benjamin netanyahu, he is waving the threat to the audience. he is using one of his guys as the minister of the housing and infrastructure. the man that tells you from day one, i will build in the areas. the area that connects western bank with jerusalem. breaking the last hope for a two-state solution. >> is iran a genuine threat or distraction from the point of the peace process? >> it is a genuine threat to israel. no doubt from the ayotallah down. a direct war of words in support of terrorism against israel. israelis feel that. part of the purpose of the trip for the president is not merely to say we care about the iran nuclear program. it is to convince israelis that they can take the steps necessary for peace knowing the united states is behind their support. the fact we will not move on the palestinian question unless the israelis feel they have the security of the united states completely to take those risks for peace. i have known that ever since camp david one. this is why this is so
